How can I get on Brooklyn’s Democratic County Committee?


Getting on a ballot requires petitioning -- collecting a minimum number of signatures from eligible voters. The next chance to petition for Kings County Democratic Committee (County Committee) is from June 5, 2018 until July 12, 2018. You cannot collect petition signatures before or after that window. You must use specific forms and collect signatures only from Democrats who are registered in the Assembly District where you live. The minimum requirement is to collect signatures from 5% of the registered Democrats in your Election District. As the number of voters in each Election District varies, the number of signatures required varies by each Election District, but it's usually somewhere between 30 and 60 signatures.

The good news is that the #RepYourBlock team will calculate the number of signatures you need to collect and give you voter lists, petitions, and any other tools you need to get started. We will collect your completed petitions between June 30 and July 4, and then file them for you with the Board of Elections to make your candidacy official by July 12.
